However, she returned to the South at least 19 times in order to help more than 300 slaves escape to freedom.
 
Harriet Tubman (1820-1913)
Abolitionist and Suffragette
Harriet Tubman was born a slave in Bucktown, Maryland. Tubman escaped to Philadelphia in 1849 via the Underground Railroad, a network of Quakers and abolitionists. In a series of daring trips, Tubman helped lead members of her family and hundreds of others to freedom. Tubman assisted John Brown in organizing the raid on Harper’s Ferry and served as a nurse, cook, and spy for the Union Army. After the Civil War, Tubman was active in the women’s suffragette movement.
